7:02pm
garnered 19% of the vote and i came in second, and i believe that we need to make our city affordable again for working people, the middle class people. it's not an affordable place to live anymore for most working people so that is something i will work on. and i will oppose major land use development because i believe it's a threat to the preservation of our neighborhoods. it's gentifies our city and it makes it basically a hostile place to live in my opinion especially living out in park merced so if you have a progressive on november 6 vote for me. thank you. >> thank you. ms. gavin. >> i am lynn gavin and i'm a pastor and like so many women there are multiple things that i do and we multi-task and kind of boring even though we didn't term that world. i am running because of the corruption and
7:03pm
malfeasance at city hall. i got involved and i was angry they didn't disclose to me they wanted to demolish my apartment and which is a violation of the law and with sunshine i began to research and research and now i have 43 pounds of paper in the research and because my case, sunshine case, that found supervisors wiener, colen, chiu and mar and they broke the state law and that is why this case is in court. they shut down sunshine and the retaliation was so strong i was evicted from my home and because i was raised right i would do it over again, and once i am elected one of the law enforcement officials will swear me in. >> i am mr.

7:05pm
the happy meals but can't fill pot holes. where is the common sense? and many paid twice to fill the pot holes and where is the accountability of our money? so if you're tired of your house being the city's atm, if you're tired of the same politics and same choices i offer you an independent choice. i promise to be your advocate and work for you and not for the special interests and the super pacs that pass the other candidates and it's important in the junk mail and look at the fine print and see who is really spending on who and who is beholden to who. i worked as a journalist for years and i will bring that common sense to city hall. thank you. >> mr. crowley.
7:06pm
>> thank you. i would like to thank the leauge of women voters. i believe what sets me apart is the integrity and problem solving i have in my years and i have a record of efficiency and infrastructure and fiscal responsibility. i have a passion for the people in the neighborhoods that i have known all by life. that's i didn't am supporting by the democratic party and diane fine stein and the firefighters and thousands in the strict. this campaign isn't about who is the best politician it is. it's about the best problem solver and with they am asking for your vote on november 6. >> all right. thank you. >> thank you. i am andrew blie and running for supervisor for the most important reason why

7:16pm
this event every year to honor those in different walks of life that are contributing to improving our chances of being full equality for women. we still have a ways to go. there is so much to do but we have accomplished quite a bit. i know former mayor brown, who is not here yet, but he will be dashing in, let him know i said this. if he were the president of the united states we would be the 186th country it ratify cdal i say that because i know he and his history was the very first to sign up our city, it pass the ordinance when he was the mayor, to make sure we were on the road by abiding by those principles and then when i had a chance as director of public works i took up the helm for that department. you know, those years, they
7:17pm
were really blue collar attitudes in public works, but we found the women leaders that we could acknowledge and promote and it became an even better agency for that very reason. so i want to again acknowledge that history. we still have a lot to do since our country has yet to ratify these principles. i hope that we will get closer and closer to do that or if not do it now, it is something that i think we've really been embarrassed about as a country not to do this on a national level. but i join you today in acknowledging as well the great work that we have locally. i know that not only do we want to be models for the rest of the country but we also are working very hard at home and we produced some tremendous results. just 10 years ago, you would have seen statistics that we
7:18pm
were quite concerned about. some 10 domestic violence homicides each year just 10 years ago that was happening. due to the fact that our commission on the status of women and thank you for your great leadership, emily and julie for the presidency this year and the friends, 10 years later we have reduced that by 80 percent in this city. it's a wonderful, wonderful tribute. we've done this with a great unity between the board and the mayor's office and i want to thank and recognize all the supervisors that are here. i saw scott wiener and the short guy in the elevator. supervisor cohen, i saw her a few minutes ago, thank you for being here. if i missed the
7:19pm
other supervisors, my apologies, i know many of them are on their way and coming. i have striven to work really hard with our supervisors to make sure that we agree as much as we can on things that are important and certainly the agenda for the commission on the status of women, the fact they can hand out some $3 million dollars in grants every year to community-based organizations to keep that work up, to keep the issues in front of us, to make sure we never accept not even one domestic violence case in this case, is something that we would be willing to accept. and i'm sure you agree with that. (applause). just an hour ago i swore in the new, the newest department head of our city, jennifer johnston, who is now the executive officer for the civil
7:20pm
service commission. she joins in a line for some fantastic women leaders of our city. they include naomi kelly, our city administrator, thank you for being here. i haven't seen her yet but i know joe an hayes white, vickky hennesy, our interim sheriff. >> doing a great job, too, vicky >> adrian pawn, monique hawn, our port, i know karen hong is our county clerk, she's joining us as well and the host of women on our commissions and our directors of our various nonprofits, thank you for all joining us and being a part of
7:21pm
us as well.that our other elect officials who are here today including our diega skoepb is here as well, other elected officials, i know we have an official from the justice department, thank you for being here and other elected officials join me in acknowledging. i know diego gascon has another reason for being here.

7:24pm
treating the board of supervisors like your misstresses. i keep telling him, not ever having had a mistres, i don't know what that means. he means in a very playful way. you can remind him about that. anyway, it's again my honor to be here today to welcome all of you to acknowledge the wonderful work that you all do and of course to give my support to the commission on the status of women. emily, you and the commission have done wonderful work. keep doing that job, keep reminding us what we have to do, keep the agenda in front of us and keep educating our public. you know, our public sometimes in the enjoyment of success and our city is becoming more and more successful, we sometimes might have those moments that we forget how we got here. one
7:25pm
of the things i just want to make sure you know, we would not be a successful city if we did not invest in our community-based organizations. that's the real secret in how we've been becoming successful in making sure we increase the numbers of women that are served or end the violent homicides or reduce the number of domestic violence cases or increase the number of women that serve on our commissions and our departments. it's working in the community constantly having that as our forefront, building strong communities. again, thank you very much and congratulations to all the honorees. thank you very much. (applause).
7:26pm
>> hello. welcome to "culturewire." we are here today with bay area artist jody chanel, and we are here to see the plaza where your piece has just been installed. >> i have been doing large-scale paintings in the galleries and museums, and the idea that in the future, i could do something that would hang out a little bit longer than the duration of the installation the kind of appeal to me. i quickly found out about the san francisco arts commission school and realized there was a pre-qualified school you had to apply to, so i applied to the. >> how long did it take you to develop this work for the plaza? >> this was a fast track project.
7:27pm
design development was about a month. >> let's look at the beautiful mural. i have never seen a mural created on asphalt. >> the heat of the asphalt, a new layer of asphalt. then, these wire rope templates that were fabricated for the line work get laid down and literally stamped into the asphalt, and then everything was hand-painted. >> maybe you could talk about some of the symbolism, maybe starting in the middle and working out. >> [inaudible] the flower of industry. >> it is like a compass. there's an arrow pointing north. >> within the great bear consolation, there are two pointed stars here. they typically lead one to the
7:28pm
northstar, otherwise known as polaris. so i thought it has a layer of theme. >> let's talk about some of the other elements in the peace. we are walking along, and there is a weather vane. there's a sweet little bird hanging on the side. what kind of bird is that? >> [inaudible] the smallest of the gulf species, and it lives around the bay area. >> you want to talk about the types of flour patterns that you send? >> [inaudible] around 1926 or so by the dahlia society. >> what is this bird here? >> that is the california quail. >> coming up here, we had a little blustery theme.
7:29pm
what is this area here? >> this is supposed to be the side view, the expense of the golden gate bridge. >> there it is. >> there are really beautiful elements of architecture still around, i would say that it gives that feeling over to the work. >> what are your hopes for it? >> that in a way it just becomes part of the area. i think it is starting to have that feeling. people utilize it. they sit and, and have their lunch and play on -- they sit and, and have their lunch and play on that -- they sit and come and have their lunch and play on it. just for it to be part of the neighborhood. that is my hope. >> is such a
